Becky Lynch made a surprise announcement during last night’s episode of RAW that she is pregnant. During the emotional segment, she also announced that she would be relinquishing her WWE RAW Women’s Title, which was revealed to be inside the MITB Briefcase and therefore won by Asuka.

Lynch, a.k.a “The Man” was expected to make a huge announcement but before she could say anything, the Women’s Money In The Bank winner Asuka stepped into the ring.

Lynch stated that the Money in the Bank winner is usually presented with a title shot, but in your case, you actually won the title and went on to reveal about her pregnancy.

“I can’t fight anymore, but you can,” an emotional Lynch said. “You are the champion. … You go be a warrior, because I’m gonna go be a mother,” Lynch added as the two superstars hugged each other inside the ring.

Lynch was the longest-reigning Raw women’s champion, holding the belt for 398 days after pinning Ronda Rousey in the WrestleMania 35 main event in April 2019. The triple-threat match, which also featured Charlotte Flair, was the first women’s main event in WrestleMania history.

The 33-year-old hails from Ireland and has been associated with WWE since 2013. Her real name is Rebecca Quin and she is a trained actor and as per reports, she is actively pursuing a second career in film and television. Earlier last week, she had a guest spot on the season premiere of the Showtime series “Billions.”

“I have no idea what happens from here, but I do know that you’ve made all my dreams come true. I entered the PC in 2013 not knowing anyone, I’ll leave that same building tonight with my new family. Thank you all so much,”Lynch said on Twitter.

She also spoke to PEOPLE Magazine of her pregnancy and said,”I’ve always, always wanted kids, I’m just so career-focused that it became one of those things that, when you’re chasing a dream for so long, I always wondered, ‘Am I going to get around to it? Is it going to happen for me? When we got together, things started to look a lot clearer and I knew he was the person that I wanted to have kids with — that this was going to happen and it was just a matter of when.”
